Default Clarion CMD4 ?

I know This has been answered before,but I searched and didn't come up with the thread.

My stereo fan stays on all the time the battery switch is turned on(radio off).

My question is, is this normal?

It doesn't sound normal. In fact, I installed my CMD4 this afternoon and thanks to your post, I made sure to check that the fan stopped when the radio was turned off.

Make sure that the 15amp wire is connected to the constant power and the 1 amp wire is connected to switched power. I thought that it was strange that the memory lead had the 15 amp fuse and the power lead only took 1 amp. I double checked the manual and this is what it said... and everything works correctly.

I would check and make sure that you didn't reverse the wires. Otherwise, I defer all technical questions to Glen E since, unlike me, he actually knows what he's talking about.

This does not sound normal. I also have the CMD4 and have no issues with the fan still running. I'd have to agree with David in that you should recheck the wiring with the constant wire and the power wire. The installation process is pretty simple. Just make sure those wires are connected properly and if the problem persists then I would assume that there is a problem with the unit.
